Aquamira Water Treatment Drops provide safe drinking water using chlorine dioxide, a well-established antimicrobial that is iodine- and chlorine-free. Chlorine dioxide has been proven effective against viruses, bacteria, and protozoa when used according to manufacturer's directions. Additionally, Aquamira destroys the waterborne pathogens without discoloring the water or adding an unpleasant taste like other common water treatments; in fact, Aquamira can actually improve the taste by neutralizing unpleasant flavors.
Aquamira Water Treatment Drops provide a two-part treatment system: labelled parts A and B must be pre-mixed in mixing cap before adding to water. This allows the two components to activate, creating a strong oxidant and effective germicidal agent. Read and follow the included directions carefully in order to ensure proper establishment of safe drinking water. Each package treats up to 30 gallons of water depending on the clarity of the water to be treated. Aquamira Drops are most often used to preserve or treat stored water, to disinfect natural water in the backcountry, to treat tap water in foreign countries, and as an necessary component in emergency preparedness kits, having a 4-year shelf life.
